My car makes a chirping noise. Early in the morning when I first start it and put it into gear to take off I hear this faint chirp. Chirp. Chirp. The more I accelerate it seems to go away. After the car has warmed up the noise almost goes completely away but is still there but very faint. Ive taking it to a couple mechanics and I was told the clutch is great and its not drivetrain related( thinking it was the throw out bearing) another shop said it was suspension related and the third shop found that my motor mount was losing the rubber and the rubber has almost worked itself out on the right mount. Do you think by fixing the motor mount will cause my chirping to go away?
Do you

Hello,

Well I have never heard a Motor Mount make a chirping sound. The most it will do is cause engine vibration and may when the rubber is totally gone make a knocking or clunk sound.

There are a few possible causes of the chirping.

The Belt

The Idler Pulley Bearing

or

The Tensioner Pulley Bearing

To test the Pulleys.

With engine off locate both the Idler and Tensioner Pulleys. Then using a spray lube spray the center bolt of one of them, start vehicle if chirping is gone for short period then replace pulley. If chirping still present repeat proceedure on other pulley.

If chirping still present start vehicle and spray lube on belt grooves. Replace belt is chirping stops.
